Top Picks for Your Lips

Posted on 09/25/2013

Shop lipsticks.

Fall is famous for color, which makes it the perfect time to adopt a new one yourself. Lipstick is a great accessory that can be bold, complementary or even work as a natural enhancement. Pucker up for this week’s top picks; b-glowing staff adores these lipsticks for the fall season.  

BY TERRY Hyaluronic Sheer Rouge, Fatal Shot: It plumps, moisturizes, disguises wrinkles and fine lines and finishes with a subtle gloss. Available in 15 colors, you can switch up your look daily, or stick to one hue for the season. For fall, our staff loves Fatal Shot: It’s a great berry color that looks playful without being too pinky.

ELLIS FAAS Creamy Lips, Blood Red: An easy, smooth application stains lips without the sticky feeling. You’ll get full coverage with a creamy finish, courtesy of a spongy applicator. We love the Blood Red color because it helps make a seductive statement without going overboard. It’s a good red for fall because it has a touch of brown, which tones it down for the perfect shade.

ILIA LIPSTICK, Funnel of Love: ILIA shades are beautifully modern with organic ingredients. The tones are generally more subtle, with a few pops of bold color, but they can all be layered so you can create your personal shade. Funnel of Love is a warm, nude shade for when you want some color that won’t clash with a smokey eye; or it’s great just for a natural palate.

KEVYN AUCOIN The Matte Lipsticks, Persistence: The color and the moisture last all day. Plus, the formula contains ingredients that minimize wrinkles over time, guaranteed. We love Persistence because it’s a fun, bold color that’ll turn heads! The more edgy violet color is perfect for the girl who likes to shake it up a bit.

Hot off the Press: InStyle Beauty Loves Glamglow, Clarisonic, Dr. Brandt and Luxe

Posted on 09/24/2013

Shop b-glowing.com.

InStyle’s fall Beauty issue featured the season’s skin must-haves, and b-glowing.com brands were among the staples. Grouped by age, our products were picked for those in their 20s, 40s and 60s, which shows how easy it is to MAKE BEAUTY™ at any age!

GLAMGLOW® was among the “Top Priority” picks for its SUPER-MUD™ clearing treatment, with results that InStyle dubbed as instantly gratifying. The specialized formula fights breakouts, discoloration and even razor bumps and in-grown hairs. This clay mask is an overachiever, since it also improves skin’s texture, stimulates collagen production and battles multiple signs of aging.

For the flirty 30s, Clarisonic took top honors for a daily morning treatment (no surprise here), as the innovative tool evens skin’s texture and tone and leaves behind a touchable softness. The Clarisonic is also a b-glowing staff favorite because of its ability to make skin, you guessed it, glow!

Dr. Brandt’s microdermabrasion skin exfoliant was also named a necessity, but not just for the face. It can work its magic on arms, hands and the neck, brightening the tone like you’d expect during an in-office microdermabrasion session. Say goodbye to dead skin cells, and embrace your youth. In Style said, “Watch your skin take on a warm, backlit glow.”

The magazine named Luxe an essential for twice-a-week treatment for its ability to boost collagen production and fight signs of aging, especially for those in their 60s. Using breakthrough technology, Luxe immediately hydrates skin and reverses major signs of aging. It’s all about looking as young as you still feel (and maybe turning a head or two).

Top Picks: Fragrances to 'Fall' For

Posted on 09/19/2013

Shop Fragrances here.

The leaves are slowly changing and as they fall, it's a great time to explore new fashion, beauty, and especially fragrances.

In this week's 'Top Picks', our b-glowing.com staff is raving about some of their favorite scents for the new season.

Juliette Has a Gun Miss Charming: Elegant and sensual Moroccan Rose combines with wild fruit and musk to create this bold and deep fragrance that reminds us of a shot of whisky and a velvet blazer all at once. “Miss Charming is a great name for this perfume, because that is exactly what it is. A beautiful rose fragrance with depth and femininity. Even if you aren’t a traditional fan of rose, it will charm your socks off!”

Sarah Horowitz Perfect Coconut Milk: This eau de parfum is easy to wear, and guaranteed to please the nose of everyone around you. Light enough for any occasion, the fusion of coconut, almond, and a hint of orange blossom is absolutely lovely and an all-around staff favorite. "This is a year-round scent, but it's expecially great for fall because the vanilla and coconut are so warm together. It just reminds you of curling up with a good book and a soft blanket."

Tokyo Milk Dead Sexy No. 6: Picking just one scent from this line was difficult, but we decided on this white orchid, vanilla, and exotic woods-infused offering. Don't let the scull and crossbones scare you, while this scent has a deep rich tone, it's still light enough for almost anyone to wear daily. “There is absolutely something sexy about this perfume, but it also very wearable and professional. The woodsy and ebony scents give an air of maturity while the vanilla warms it up to leave you feeling super confident.”

Aromachology Sophisticated and Sensual: Who says pink isn't for fall? This fresh and playful floral scent is a nice option for anyone looking to take a little summer with them this season. Grapefruit and white lily play nice together, while sandalwood adds the warmth we look for in autumn fragrances. “This is a scent for every day. It is light, pleasant and even a little playful. The white flower and citrus combination can be worn by anyone.”

Tips & Tricks: NuFACE Tutorial

Posted on 09/18/2013

Shop NuFACE here.

This technology is one of the latest and greatest in the anti-aging industry. Used in all of the top spas and medical offices for facial toning, NuFACE is noninvasive, effective, and often referred to as a “non-surgical face-lift”.

How does NuFACE work?

Microcurrent technology delivers low-level currents sending soft, gentle waves through the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production. This method doesn’t just cover-up wrinkles and fine lines, it gets to the source! Think of it as a magic wand that turns back the clock!

Who is NuFACE for?

A-list celebrities have turned to microcurrent facials to keep their skin looking flawless every time they face the paparazzi on the red carpet. Madonna, Kate Winslet, and Jennifer Lopez are just a few Hollywood ladies that have this technology to thank for their youthful looks. For those who are 30 or older, microcurrent helps to maintain firm skin and its silky texture. As users reach the age of 50 and beyond, microcurrent works to naturally lift sagging and wrinkling skin for a more youthful appearance.

Why NuFACE?

The NuFACE Trinity Facial Toning Device is the only handheld microcurrent device that has been clinically proven to improve skin tone, facial contour, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. With this easy-to-use device, you can hydrate and revitalize your complexion for softer, smoother and more youthful skin overall.

Ready to use your NuFACE device? It's as easy as 1, 2, 3!

#1 - PREP: Apply any NuFACE Infusion Serum (Nourisher, Smoother, Lifter, Collagen Booster) followed by NuFACE Crème Primer to your targeted treatment area(s).

#2 - LIFT: Glide the NuFACE device over the natural contours of your face.

#3 - FINISH: Wipe skin with a warm, damp cloth, then apply your toner, serums and moisturizer of choice.

Move from nose to ear for cheek application.

Move device in an upward motion from brow to hairline for forehead treatment.

Katelyn: (Right hand) butter LONDON Wellies (Left hand) butter LONDON Slapper

Kayla: RGB Cosmetics Oxblood
Ready for summer to end, our Brand Assistant Kayla welcomes fall with a 5-free vampy wine shade. "With Fall quickly approaching, I wanted something new so I went from blonde to brunette with my hair and I wanted to play-up the dark on my nails as well!"
